Trivia


 

    Album

  • This superhit film was remade in Telugu as "Bhale Ramudu" (1984), starring Mohan Babu, and in Tamil as "Velaikaran" (1986), starring Rajinikanth.
  • The song "Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai" ("Kaalia", 1981) had to be shot on the sets of this film due to budget and schedule constraints.[1]
  • Prakash Mehra had initially offered Raj Babbar the role that was eventually played by Shashi Kapoor in this film. He had to bring Shashi Kapoor in after the film's distributors insisted on getting an actor more saleable than Raj Babbar.[2]

    Song

  • Raat Baaki Baat Baaki - This song was re-created by Tanishq Bagchi for the film "Ittefaq" (2017).[3]
  • Raat Baaki Baat Baaki - Bappi Lahiri had recorded the male vocals for the scratch track of this song and had intended to replace it with Mohammed Rafi's voice. Director Prakash Mehra, however, decided to retain the music director's vocals.[4]
  • Raat Baaki Baat Baaki - Shashi Kapoor was nervous while recording this song since Bappi Lahiri wanted him to say his lines in the song with live music. It was with the help of Bappi Lahiri's father, Apresh Lahiri, that the actor found his nerve to record his lines.[5]
  • Ke Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi - The sargam in this song picturised on actor Ram Sethi was sung by Pandit Satyanarayan Mishra but he was not officially credited for it.
  • Ke Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi - This 8-minute song was recorded over four days and employed more than 100 musicians for its orchestra. It took Kishore Kumar a whole day to record the song.[6]
  • Ke Pag Ghunghroo Baandh Meera Naachi Thi - The scene in the film preceding this song, in which Amitabh Bachchan loses a shoe in the water stream at a hotel, was inspired by a similar scene featuring Peter Sellers in the film "The Party" (1968).
  • Thodi Si Jo Pee Lee Hai - Bappi Lahiri had used a tune similar to the tune of the antara of this song earlier in the antara of "Haan Pahli Baar" ("Aur Kaun", 1979).[7]
  • Aaj Rapat Jaayen Toh Hamen Naa Uthaiyo - This was Smita Patil's first big-budget, mainstream Hindi film. This rain song was perhaps the toughest thing about her transition from art to commercial films. She was upset about having to shoot the rain-drenched dance in this song and was said to be in tears on the night of the day it was shot. When the film became a hit, it embarrassed her that of all the films she had done, it was this film that people remembered her the most for.[8]
  • Jawani Jaaneman Haseen Dilruba - A tune used in the prelude and interludes of this song appears to have been adapted from the song "The Candy Man" (1972) by Sammy Davis Jr. Other portions of the song may have been inspired by Donna Summer's "The Wanderer" (1980).[9][10]
